Uterine fibroids are being tumors, usually located in the walls of the uterus. In most cases, women having problems with uterine fibroids are experiencing more or less unpleasant symptoms, but this condition might go unnoticed and without the any apparent symptoms. Most commonly, women complain about heavy periods and bloated feeling. This is not a serious condition and it doesn’t present a life threat, but sometimes it can cause pain. Because of that, many women decide to treat these benign tumors.
Other symptoms of uterine fibroids include spotting between two periods, pain during the intercourse, back pain, urinary problems, anemia and lumps in the abdomen. In some rare cases uterine fibroids are known to affect the potential pregnancy.
